Notes/Commercial Description:
Beauregarde is our first ever use of blueberries and we couldn't be happier with how this beer turned out. We added an incredible amount of fruit to our barrel aged, sour blonde ale and the result is just as expected. A lovely shade of reddish purple with flavors of tart blueberries, just in time for summer. Perfect along side a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Good beer. The blueberries, for me, were most noticeable on the finish and were very pure in flavor and added a nice bit of complexity to this sour ale. The beer reminded me of Oude Tarte in terms of acidity and mouthfeel, but with a bit more lift and freshness. Good beer.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy purple with a small light pink head that settles pretty quickly and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Smells tart with a bit of blueberry, some hay, and a hint of cherry. Taste has a bit of initial sweetness and is really tart. Mid palated has some blueberry and a pez-like flavor. The finish is quite tart with a bunch of blueberry and a little cherry. The blueberry lingers for a bit. Medium body. Medium carbonation.

750 ml bottle served in a Zwanze taster.

A: Pours a hazy purple color with a light white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some splotches of lace are left down teh glass.

S: Light berry notes with a touch of oak. Lactic sourness with a tart blueberry note.

T: The blueberry isn't as prevalent as I would have liked. It's very subtle because the rest of the beer is dominated a by a deep sourness. Mouth drying and puckering with an oaky undertone.

M: Bubbly carbonation with a drying finish. Light bodied with an intense sourness to it.

O: Overly sour and one dimensional. I needed a little more blueberry on this one.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Piggly Wiggly tulip (yes, there is such a thing). 2013 vintage.

A - Brilliantly clear dark red, even on the edge of light purple. Light pink head that is very slight and almost no lacing.

S - Tart blueberries, cherries, white vinegar, and a slight bit of barnyard funk.

T - A very tart mixed berry fruit juice. Acidity isn't overpowering. Not much barnyard, but does dry out noticeable at the end (Brett?)

M - Light and spritzy. Refreshing, but I could easily see this with a bit more body.

O - Nice refreshing drink, not really complex, but good drink on a hot day.

750mL shared 4 ways at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Musty, chalky magenta with a light and airy white head that peaks at a finhger before falling to the barest ring.

Pungent oak and busting out of the gates acidity. Blueberry is quite pronounced. Faint hint of nail polish remover.

Taste is tangy, zesty, and sherbety. So much so that the blueberry component is more fuzzy than focused. Nice, but not a complex flavour profile.

Thick, buzzy with modest but asertive carbonation. The oaky edges allay the sourness and any potential for harshness at the finish.

Solid and enjoyable, but it's conspicuously another product of the Bruery's well-worn oaked-sour template. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just becoming a bit familiar.
